A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) in Latvia
The Latvian Medical Foundation supported a project in Latvia that provided child amputees with modern prosthetic devices.
In April 2007 a team of Latvian prosthetics experts traveled to India to visit the A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) Clinic in Ahmedabad. The trip was funded by the Nelss Corporation and LMF.
The purposes of the trip were to establish a relationship between prosthetists in Latvia and India, exchange information on prosthetic materials and techniques, learn how to set up and operate a modern ALTSO facility, and explore the possibility of establishing in Latvia a facility similar to the ALTSO Clinic in India.
